so lemme get this striaight. you can turn a 3.8 v6 into a 4.6V6? lol that would be hella funny to be in a 4.6v6 and roll up on a Gt and be like, "yeah its a v6" and then the gt guy goes "why do you have 4.6 emblems then?" and then the v6 guy goes "cause its a 4.6 v6 hahaha eat that v8 loser"

ok anyways, but would a 4.6v6 have same hp/torque as a 4.6v8? i would think the v6 would make better high end hp but it still lacks the low end torque that the v8 would have.

A properly setup 4.6L V6 would be really close in low-end torque and
have a better torque curve overall, (due to the even fire) and if it has
the right cam and heads it will make more HP too. The V6 heads and
intakes generally flow more than the SOHC 4.6 stuff (by quite as bit!)
but as one mods a V8 the extra cylinders make a difference.

Ask a more specific comparison and I can tell yo u how it would react.

car wont start

After a front end accident ,the fuel pump has an automactic cut -off switch in trunk. Read your owner's manual and find it . Once reset, it should start fine
